September to have most MoTs

September looks set to be the biggest month in history for MoT tests and could hand garages, mechanics and service providers one of their biggest boosts ever, according to

More than 2.6m cars were registered in 2015, with September alone seeing 462,517 registrations according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). Under current MOT rules, cars aged three years or older must undertake the test, meaning September 2018 will see a record number of MoTs take place across the country.

The huge number of cars needing pre-MoT inspections in September 2018 will provide a timely boost to mechanics, garages and service providers up and down the country, according to Scott Hamilton.

Scott, managing director, said, ‘2015 was the year that the UK motor trade really started to make some big strides forward, with new registrations passing the two million mark for the first time in over a decade. That strong performance three years ago means that this month should be a stellar period for service providers, with more motorists than ever before needing MoTs.’
